State censorship has been evident over all time, but what is happening today, especially considering the ease of access and the voluminous amount of information available, is far beyond the scope of understanding for most in this country. The Internet is a wonder, but it is a very sharp double-edged sword. The real power among us understands this concept intimately, while the ‘public’ has little awareness of the potential for the controllers to eliminate history and speech by using the very tool that should allow for an expansion of learning and intellect. The Internet can store and make available all the works of man, both past and present, and all this information is seemingly accessible to anyone with little effort, but is that really the case?
The risk that is missed by most, is that as easy as it is to access information today, that information can be manipulated, hidden, or eliminated just as easily, and that process could be controlled by a central ‘authority’ through any of its fascist partnerships. If much of the underlying information of recorded history; books, journals, letters, and all historical and political records and writings, can be captured, controlled, or even destroyed by nefarious efforts, then that would leave available only what is stored digitally. This would be an abomination, because it would also allow for the loss of much hard knowledge of the past and present by those controlling the Internet and communication systems. For this horror to occur, all books would not have to be destroyed, but if much of the important information were restricted from view by whatever means, or made very difficult to access, then people would know only what the state wanted them to know.
We live in a digitized age where physical classic and modern works, documents, books, and papers are very seldom sought. I find this very troubling, because the general population, especially the young, have been raised and trained in an era of television, cell phones and computers, and many have never read any physical material about history, culture, nature, science, art, or any other of a multitude of subjects. In other words, they are fully dependent on the mainstream media, technology, and the Internet for all the information they get, good or bad. It takes little imagination to realize that this could lead to a planned censorship over generations so as to mold minds in a way suitable to the state. If all information is thought to be available from limited sources that can be manipulated, censored, or fully controlled, what will be available in the future is what those that gain or hold power want to be available. In reality, the future is already here.
Censorship today is everywhere, and is affecting many areas of thought. To paraphrase Ray Bradbury, there are so many ways to burn books without ever starting a fire. Figuratively speaking, all the books have not been burned to date, but many are becoming more and more difficult to find or access, whether hard copies or online. But since most in this country now use only the Internet for so many things, this is going mostly unnoticed. We are living in a period of extreme tyranny, but it is more than that. It is a planned takeover of humanity as a whole, with the stated goal of creating a “Great Reset” that is based upon a technocratic world governing system controlled by oligarchs through smart grid technology.
Obviously, the Internet will be with us, and that can be a great thing, but we can never allow for the few to create and control the entirety of the technological systems. In other words, there needs to be multiple private opposing systems so that one “Internet of things” cannot be susceptible to any oligarchic control. If the ruling class and the state apparatus gain control of information, there will be no information, only propaganda.
Considering the situation today, censorship is far worse than I have experienced in my lifetime, and is worsening every day. It is getting almost impossible to find any alternative material or information that is either contrary to the state narrative, or in any way outside the thought police’s system of control. Any website or content that discusses real issues and truth concerning government, this fake virus pandemic, 5G technology, vaccines, election fraud, riots, and any other of a thousand issues not approved by the state, are disappeared or taken down. This is a daily occurrence, and searching for this content is becoming impossible due to the algorithmic manipulation by the big technology giants. These are not legitimate private companies, as most were funded by government and are partnered (in bed with) government, CIA, corrupt corporations and foundations, the pharmaceutical industry, and the mainstream media, among many other corrupt and criminal entities.
Censorship is absolutely rampant today. Web sites and alternative news platforms are being closed. YouTube and most all social sites with few exceptions are censoring everything possible, search engines are making almost any legitimate research impossible by hiding truthful or critical content, alternative journalism is being attacked and taken down, and many have been demonetized. The CIA controlled mainstream media are playing quarterback for the state, the global ‘elites,’ the corrupt ‘health’ organizations, the Fascist Biden administration, and are aggressively pushing every globalist agenda down the throats of gullible Americans.
We are experiencing a time when information should be the most abundant in the history of mankind, but it is being censored and eliminated to the point of closing the door to any information that is not approved by the controlling class and their political accomplices. This is unbelievably dangerous, because when the people allow speech to be manipulated or restricted in any way, truth is effectively erased, and all that is left is state propaganda. With speech censored and effectively disappeared, only the state narrative will be reported. In this environment, the masses will normally accept the lies as truth and the truth as lies. This can only lead to a slave society.
A country deprived of information and speech will cease to be free. A country without knowledge of its history will cease to be a country.
“When you tear out a man’s tongue, you are not proving him a liar, you’re only telling the world that you fear what he might say.”
